Interview With Author, Sasha Issenberg

"Sasha is and joins us now. From santa monica california he is the author of several books including the sushi economy globalization and the making of a modern delicacy the victory lab the secret science of winning campaigns outpatients the astonishing new world of medical tourism and his new book the engagement america's quarter-century struggle over same sex marriage. Sasha thanks for being here thanks pamela. Let's start with something that probably not a lot of your readers will know but you know very well and i know which is that. This book was supposed to come out a full year ago. In june twenty twenty and it was one of those books that was delayed by the covid pandemic but maybe delayed the most. What was that like. It was tough so it got delayed three times in the last year. And i think some of that was in the spring. It was a marketing consideration that with bookstores closed and no live events. A lot of publishers held their books back and then it was supposed to come out last september. And by that point it was sort of a manufacturing problem as best i gathered. Publishers can actually get the books out of warehouses because people were sick. I learned the hard way that book publishing facilities are basically like meat. Packing plants with with wood pulp. So i had a lot set up last fall. And i had to put it all on hold and here i am must be a big relief if nothing else it is and you know. It was pretty cautious in writing this book of understanding that this was a topic where it was possible events in the news could affect it and tried to write it so that when it came out it would be current and i think there was some possibility that things can happen over the last year. That would change that dynamic and they really haven't in a significant way which is which is useful.

"Dot com promo code G. Okay, we are back with Stanford University's Hoover Institution, senior fellow strategist, par excellence. Anything, he writes, You should read it. But most recently, the case for Trump Let's talk about the four years off the Trump Administration professor. If we ever have a fair historical reckoning with the Trump administration, especially if you look at the last 120 days off the Biden foreign policy or just the crisis of the border. What would be the fair objective assessment? Of national security, leadership and foreign policy leadership off the 45th commander in chief. Nick is He's gonna be Ripper, most for resetting the entire last quarter century approached in China that that by SARS bipartisan Council on Foreign Relations Brookings Institution notion that the more Leeway you granted China and the more exemptions for their illegal mercantile behavior, the more they were gonna become wealthy and therefore they were going to become democratic, consensual That didn't ever that never happened. They were emboldened, interpret that Magnum entity is weakness to be exploited. He's single handedly did that I say single and because nobody in the Republican primary Until Trump formulated that idea. The second thing I think is he went in the Middle East and he showed you that this last 70 years have been a failure. And one of the reasons was that we allow the Palestinians to claim and perpetuity. They were refugees and the way that we don't with the Greek Cypriots or the Prussians who East Prussians or the Volga Germans and are the Jews that were ethnically cleansed from the Arab world after the various wars, and then they had a veto power over what 500 million people in the Arab Italy said. And so when he said that you're not going to get a and you're not going to tell us what's gonna happen with the embassy or with Golan Heights, Except that was a shocking thing. And then the able, McCord said. You the Arab countries that are doing well and Israel have a lot in common in general, but in particular, they have a common foe in Iran. And then he said, take a round out of the equation as a revolutionary disruptor with Hezbollah that Ruthie's Hamas, and you would have peace that was a new formulation and see now by undoing it. We had war almost immediately. Joe Biden's legacy is he managed to take a calm Middle East and give us a war within 120 days, So I think those two things are very important. There were other things he that he did that were equally important. And that is eyes Hear it home in terms of security. Hey, had a An animal cunning. If I could use that word, I don't mean it in a derogatory but he had a sense from the very beginning that the virus the covert virus, the stars, right originated in the womb on military lab. He didn't say it was deliberately manufacturers a weapon. But he said it was a gain of function enhancement. Everybody said that he and anybody who Agreed with him was a conspiracy is and now we know over a year later, even and the fellow cheese position is evaporating, and he was probably involved in granting funds for that type of research. And then he said, you know, Every state vaccination has failed. The EU has failed. Chinese vaccinations have failed. The Russians comparatively near the United States has the Johnson the visor and The Madonna and it was a brilliant strategy of having some competition, giving some help to this company, a different type of helping of that company. Ah, third and he said From the very beginning within 10 months, we will have a vaccination. In fact, he would have had a vaccination before the election, but until Fizer mysteriously delayed the date until a few days after the election, but that was an enormously important Strategic achievement because right now we're in a better position. Visa Vico Within all the European country, I can completely concur or confirm. Having worked in the White House with President Trump. There was Something predator natural to his instincts.

"I think maybe the peak of them themselves before they started the kind of downhill was that that thursday night game against the packers when on breath was knocked. Aaron rodgers came in. They were they truly. Looked unstoppable at that point and I mean they were unstoppable on offense on defense. They had a blocked field goal. Return for a touchdown against minnesota. I mean they were unreal in every facet and the fact that it i mean greg. Ellis was on that team like we forget. The greg ellis was a part of that team and rookie. Nick folk. i mean. They had an amazing monday night win. That's how good they were that. They kind of overcome shooting themselves in the foot. And all these different ways they want truly every style are they the most infamous team at least some of the last quarter century. Oh yeah no question about that. I think you truly say that. And i do have one. Who ain't a maybe a what if rj on that I think you're talking about the coach. What if parcells had stayed around will more year would they have wanted with bill parcells. Because you wouldn't have allowed the caller. Let's beat right. How much the kabo trip played into that that loss but certainly it think about it but they would not have gone to kabul bill parcells. There's no way so would that team have had a better chance to go to the super bowl to go to the chief ship game. Whatever it is at least the giants individual round would they have had a better chance with bill parcells. I would argue that. Yes they would have had a better chance. I don't know if they would have done. They didn't get down against seattle The year before so so maybe they don't get it done. But i would've liked your chances with both par- cells at home home field advantage out of like the cowboys. Chances in that game but it didn't work out that way and and Way phillips was able to go. Thirteen three did not get it done in the postseason salacious canada. The way it goes. But yeah i would say with the most infamous team in probably team history from up there number one my last. What if on this this is a. I don't think i've ever even thought of this before. So i'm glad that you're the person that i bounced off of And it's nowhere near as as existential as bill parcells one. But what if. Terry glenn is not hurt at the beginning of that season and patrick doesn't cement himself as this would be Wide receiver to opposite terrel. Owens i mean this if if a healthier glenn is is more relied upon Does that play off plopping. I place it on. Patrick ratings hands. In that playoff there were a lot of things wrong in that playoff game. But i mean this does that does that change. Anything of terry glenn is healthy for the entire season. I mean obviously came back for week. Seventeen But do you trust every glenn more and may he rest in peace in that hypothetical situation than you did. Patrick crayton more accomplished receiver in and then you would have had patriot. Patrick is your other guy. You know with terry land. And i just think you would have made receiving core better surly. That's that's a question. A what if question for throwing those out there. That's one what expert you know. What injuries in in coaches quitting part of this game dawn on me until now about how. What if jimmy had stayed. What bright nelson stay. Maybe countless have two more super bowl titles if they had gotten a tall phone coaches to stay around even one more year. But it didn't happen like that so we can. We can what we want. It's not gonna change time in in the way things have played out and you know maybe this new coaching staff in in this coach. That already has a super bowl title. Now at the cowboys can deliver them one. Which has been done since very switzer. Ninety five the last thing before i ask her last question if he stays. I wonder this jason garrett joined the cowboys staff. If there are no vacancies on the staff. Does he ended up elsewhere. does he have success. Obviously he was courted by baltimore in atlanta following the season. Busy have that kind of success as he ever wind up on the cops. Does he ever climb the ladder to become head coach. Me that's a really powerful. What if In college history Sharon to answer the question. Although i think we have who is the greatest of all time. It sounds like your mind is made up on nineteen ninety-two ninety two. It's close in you know again. You look at the the different errands. But yeah i'm going down to. I think that was the greatest team of all time. That's well how many teams just generally would you say. Outranked him in nfl history. I mean they're in the top five. I you know that's feels like a safe floor for them. Yeah i think they're probably in the top five in that. I would really have to look at it and study it out exactly where they ranked. But i think it's fair just off the top of my hand to say they're probably in the top five of all time all time teams the fact that they were able to win three and four years and rank that as the best cowboys team among those four teams. I think that puts them in that conversation in put some firmly in that conversation of of the greatest of all time you know you look at some of the forty niners teams in some of the steelers teams in the packers.

"Never things. I wanna talk our next guest about. Pat forty covers the entire sports world for cy but lately he's been spending a lotta time on thoroughbred racing pat. I don't follow this for like you do but every time you think. Sport has a chance to regain some public trust and integrity We have a season like this And then the latest news. Today with bob baffert. I know nothing is surprising to you about horse racing but what what is what are the last couple of weeks. Been like corruption never sleeps. It's been It's pin wild. That's for sure i mean. Only the second time we have seen in kentucky derby drug disqualification be at least possibility We have still waiting on the second sample from medina to see if he is officially disqualified as the winner of the derby that obviously spilled over to the preakness. His running ability to run in math was granted by maryland. Jockey club very controversial eight. People were very happy to see him. Ron and then for those people are rooting against him. They got what they wanted when he faded down the stretch and not and finished third as part of a very bad performance by bob baffert forces in baltimore over the weekend. And now you've got. Bob baffert suspended temporarily at least by the new york racing association so the problem is this is a sport that just has never been able to or willing to get its arms around the medication issues within it and now they're paying the price in terms of just kind of a cascade of negative publicity and for those who don't follow thoroughbred racing me bob baffert is. I don't know you tell me the equivalent to bill. Bella checker nick saban in the sport absolutely. Yeah was one seven kentucky derbies if the latest one holds up which would be a record. He has dominated for the last quarter century. I think those comparisons very much apt But he's also been a lightning rod figures especially these had more medical disqualifications or fines in the last year or so than most other trainers and so he's become a very much one of those figures that people either really like to see or really like the root against and speaking of figures people really like to see. Leave is the former commissioner almost former commissioner of the pack. Twelve larry scott he has now gone. I saw you writing about his replacement the other day a decision that that caught literally everyone by surprise but Is this new man. And a is he enough to to salvage a once. Great and proud conference ray question. Tvd you know we're going to have to wait and see whether this is. I think it's either a boomer bust move They play cough. Who comes from very much outside the college sports round which same thing larry scott did. Didn't work out for. Larry scott very well play. Cop certainly comes in sounding like he knows where the shortfalls were with. Larry scott and how to go about trying to fix them but the question is can. His business acumen can his media. Right savvy his Marketing platforms digital know-how help basically take the the pac twelve from second tier status backup towards. I hear they've got a lot to overcome their and they've they're they're way behind in revenue. They're very much behind in onfield performance and quite frankly the fan interest is behind other places. And i think that's really the driving factor if the schools don't feel an imperative from the fan bases to do everything. They can to succeed in men's basketball. Will they really do. It might not matter. The commissioners talking to pad forty from sports illustrated on another front. That you've spent a lot of time writing about and that's the college football playoff and you know we. You know when when bill hancock a couple of weeks ago alluded to. Maybe there was some news. I think most of us were skeptical. But by the time you and your colleagues and everyone else started reporting the story and commissioner started surfacing This thing does seem real. But but pat how real and and wendy expect change. And what do you expect when they do have change. I do think it's real my colleague. Balancer did a great job reporting on that recently and getting to most of the commissioners involved in this and the majority of them say that there is an appetite to at least discuss change. And i think probably to enact change. And i do think we are looking eight. To twelve teams probably. I don't think we'll go as high as sixteen. But i think we definitely have an expansion of the playoff Which i think is a good thing. I think they're widens the national interest of the sport. It's no longer just a niche southeast plus ohio state sort of Setup for bait. What's been the plow here recently so i think it'd be it'd be a wise move. I don't you know. I don't know why larry scott and others been in these houses have been somewhat marginalized hadn't been pounding on the table for years to expand the playoff. But i think now we're going to get to that point that there is an imperative to do with the money to do it and one thing this last year did paul was to show that you know the academic protestations about well. We can't play during finals week. You know that's that's a time when. I need to be spokes on her studies. Well that went out the window when it was on. Tv contracts with games on december twelve december eighteenth december nineteenth can can do it in a pandemic. They can.

"Today. Our topic is love. I a families guide to intervention and my guests are the authors debra j and jeff j. in case you're wondering yes they are couple deborah and jeff have been married since nineteen ninety-two together. They are shining example of how it works and how impactful their work has been in helping thousands of other people in nearly quarter century that i've known them. Jeff and debra welcome to our program today. Thanks for having us william. It's so nice to be here with you. William thank you for inviting us. Well thank you for being here from your home. Actually grosse pointe farms michigan. I'm very envious of your location there. Jeff i want to start with you by reading. One of your famous quotes quote. I believe in intervention for a very simple reason. It saved my life. Can you explain. that's exactly right. My alcoholism and drug addiction had taken me down to the point that i was sleeping under bushes in the city parks Out in california homeless and penniless and it was a rather untraditional but effective family intervention. That got me out of where i was and and got me into a hospital and into treatment and without that intervention. I'm certain that i would not have survived. That was back in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. So it's been quite a while now there. You are already in recovery in your own right. Can you explain i. Can you know. I am an adult child of an alcoholic but in my twenties trust me. I didn't think that affected me. In the least in fact. I thought i was controlling the whole world and i went through a really excellent family program for somebody else that was helping of course and halfway through all of my illusions came crashing down and i had this understanding that no matter how hard i tried. My life wasn't really working and And i was told about alanon. And i ask for help. I reached out and i was directed to alanon. That was over thirty years ago now. Which i cannot not believe but truly changed my life in fact i would say it saved my life. I don't know where. I would have been if it hadn't been for that program. That's i'm still active in to this day.

"At just after nine pm. On april nineteenth nineteen eighty nine a twenty eight year old woman named tricia miley was assaulted dragged from public path into a ravine in central park raped repeatedly and battered to near death. Five teenage boys known by the media as the central park five were charged with the crime and four of them having been coerced by authorities confessed. Surprisingly false. confessions are not uncommon among younger suspects. According to the national registry of exonerations young people are prone to admitting guilt for crimes. They did not commit thirty. Eight percent of exonerations for crimes allegedly committed by youth under eighteen in the last quarter century involved. False confessions as the world awaited their trial heavy hitting real estate developer. Donald trump spent over eighty five thousand dollars on the local newspapers full page advertisements. The ad simply red bring back the death penalty green back our police though. The innocent miners had not yet gone to trial. Trump had no problem calling for their execution. His ads inspired a media firestorm. Fueling the public to turn against the five. The police and prosecutors cooked up a pretty convincing albeit false narrative about the boys activities in the park that night at the time. Coverage of violent crime was rising in the media and though there wasn't any real evidence the journalists bought into the plot too quickly as reporters pedaled the story. They drove the justice. Department's need to hold someone responsible as they were tried. Each boys story contradicted the others. There wasn't a single eyewitness and no. dna evidence proved the kids guilt. Nevertheless all five suspects cases were settled and they were convicted. Corey wise was found guilty of riot assault and sexual abuse and tron mccray yussef salaam and raymond santana were all found guilty of robbery riot rape and assault and kevin. Richardson was found guilty of robbery assault rape and attempted murder. Their sentences ranged from six to thirteen years in prison later. The boys recanted and attempted to change their pleased to not guilty. They said they were coerced into confession. By underhanded police tactics still wise mcrae salaam and santana spent nearly a decade behind bars. Richardson was imprisoned for even longer over a decade later in two thousand and two corey wise ran into an inmate. He'd seen once before muttiah s- raise res- was locked up for a series of rapes in the late nineties as well as for murder after speaking with wise ray as told the police he was responsible for the attack and sexual assault of tricia miley in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty nine. He said he was only seventeen when he attacked her. He also made it very clear that he acted alone. Gray has confessed with great detail. He shared information. Only the attacker could have known fluffs. His dna was a match to that collected at the crime scene. Though res- was guilty of another rape only two days before tricia majlis incident. He was never named a suspect in her case. On december nineteenth two thousand to thirteen years after the crime and after the central park five had almost entirely served their full sentences the new york supreme court vacated their convictions in two thousand and three wise mcrae richardson salaam and santana filed a civil lawsuit against new york city. They sued for racial discrimination malicious prosecution and emotional distress. Though the city of voided the case for more than ten years it eventually settled for forty one million dollars. The payout gave the men one million dollars for every year. They were imprisoned. Four of the five served about seven years. Each kevin wise served thirteen years the case of the central park five shed some light on the inequities people of color face when they come into contact with mass media and the legal system since their exoneration the central park five have forged ahead with their lives kevin. Richardson has married. He and his spouse are raising their daughters outside new york and he advocates for criminal justice reform anton mccray has moved to georgia where he and his wife are raising their six children. Raymond santana also moved to georgia. He's raising his daughter and in two thousand eighteen. He founded his clothing label park madison. Nyc corey wise resides in his hometown. New york city. He's an activist public speaker and pioneer. For criminal justice reform. Yusef salaam is a father of ten children also in georgia. He's a published. Poet and advocate for justice reform tricia miley works with survivors of sexual assault and brain injury in the end. The five falsely accused men and the victim of the april nineteenth attack persevered in the face of insurmountable adversity. Their strength in the face of such unjustness reminds us that we must do better in the pursuit of.

Is a Two State Solution Possible in Israel/Palestine?

"The idea that a two state resolution to the israel palestine conflict is no longer possible is not really a new one. It has been after all a quarter century. Since the oslo agreements and pessimism seems to rain but lustick offers too powerful but potentially controversial ideas about the failure of the two state solution. I he places the blame directly on israel's settlement project and its territorial maximalism which has its roots in the history of the entire twentieth century conflict. For instance he points to zev. Jabotinsky is notion of the iron wall. The idea that would only negotiate with jews after they had been defeated which has had the paradoxical outcome that the repeated israeli victories over the decades have emboldened the israeli leadership so they have been less likely to come to the negotiating table. He also emphasizes the collective memory of the holocaust as a profound factor in israeli society. And the pro israel lobby in the us both of which emboldened israel's hawkish parties and make the israelis less likely to negotiate a two state solution. And secondly lustick who once was a proponent of the two state solution now says that it's a distraction from reality. He argues that there is and has long been just one st between the jordan river and the mediterranean sea the pursuit of a two state solution. He posits is an unrealizable dream when the real need is to push for rights and citizenship for all people living in this territory which is effectively one. St

"This franchises had over a quarter of a century. The playoff drought has been well documented years since advancing in the postseason. There's a lot of reasons for that. But it's only truly going to come to an end when this franchise can start producing a sustainable quality. Starting pitching it is the biggest reason. Why the biggest reason why this franchise relative to its history has drastically underperformed over the last quarter century. The biggest reason i think to a degree we've become conditioned and i hate this. I hate that. This is kind of what the reds have done to us. I think we've become conditioned to think that when you're good it's gonna be for a year or two and then they're going to stink for five or six years at a time. I hate that i think. That's a byproduct that rebuild taking so long right. It really started in two thousand fourteen because the team wasn't very good and then they finally clue phone went off. Bob castellini all star games in the rear view mirror. Let's start unloading off. And now we're gonna stink for years was irrelevant in the standings for half a decade. That's any turney. It's unforgivable and frankly a competitive marketplace. It's not sustainable. But it's the byproduct of being better developing starting pitching other positions matter as well. But that's that's that to me is the primary byproduct of you're going to trade away johnny cueto because you don't wanna pay him by the way good thing they didn't that's cool.

Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case

"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

"last quarter century" Discussed on America Adapts the Climate Change Podcast

"Those long gone halcyon days where we were promoting democracy trust and to control of the military. So that's where i started. Let's talk about how climate change. And i'm curious. Do you even remember the late eighties. Even senator al gore was talking about climate change but then we even into the ninety s we have the protocol. Did you see it becoming part of the national security conversation. When did you first see that happening. Nine nine hundred ninety. Senator nunn and senator gore together created the strategic environmental research and development program. Congress passed this law on the defense bill. A nine hundred ninety and that created the first major environmental research development program in the department defense. The purpose at the time was to take the vast body of research development done in the defense intelligence communities during the cold war and put it to use to address environmental challenges a combination of increasing environmental awareness during the one thousand nine hundred seventies and eighties with the growing number of environmental laws. Americans being aware of from silent spring onward. About how our activities were degrading. The environment began to be recognized even among federal facilities like the department defense department of energy and so that weirdness was almost reached its peak when i joined the department defense in one thousand nine hundred ninety three there were about one hundred military bases that were listed having superfund sites in the most toxic cleanup sites in the country and some of the military departments had already been sued for failure to comply with clean water act laws and other environmental laws show. It was almost a mini crisis at the time because one of those lawsuits actually stopped training at fort bragg when the army and not complied with the endangered species act requirements to protect the red cockaded woodpecker. That lives in the longleaf. Pine found abundantly on fort bragg military bases in the southeast in fact the military. Us military has largest date of longley pie left in the united states. It's found eglin air force base in florida. And that's because the way we operate america's military bases they're protected from most of the urban and other types of development and they have large open spaces so they become islands of nature so the military really learned how to take these challenges and create opportunities from so the military became to see the home for the red cockaded woodpecker for example the tree in which it lives as realistic trading obstacle and instead of having to instead of cutting it down to provide more training area it actually used it to enhanced training and so that's just one of the many examples in which environmental stewardship became over the last quarter century embedded in military practices. I get it though it. Just the specific thinking of climate change in kyoto. If i recall it was ninety seven or ninety eight when it was rejected by the senate and here we have a potential international global treaty and did the department of defense even take a global global warming. Was there any chatter whatsoever saying hey we might have to contribute our perspective on what this treaty might mean. I mean was you the use of the word climate change going on then absolutely so we were aware of it. You know as you mentioned alcohol. Four and others head been testifying on this before congress already starting in the nineteen eighties and eating the lead up to the kiosk political associations in nineteen ninety seven the us department defense as part of the iterative process that us government undertakes to prepare for major global treaty negotiation. We had begun to examine the impact of reducing greenhouse gas emissions on military activities..

"Field I MG College, Iowa A 73 57 win over Ohio State. Luca Garza 24 points. 11 rebounds for Iowa is 23rd Career 2010 game, most by a big 10 player. Over the last quarter century. I was seventh victory over a top 25 team this season, tying Kansas for most individuals earlier on ESPN Radio David I called from 24 7 Sports. Do you think about Iowa one time lost or five? Then they round off four straight wins, then obviously a step back against Michigan, but to come back out, and to beat a team of Ohio State's caliber, I think it's absolutely huge. You know, Iowa traditionally has been known, cannot wants a full down the stretch, but they don't play their best basketball when it matters most. I think that it's kind of been the opposite this year. I think that the C J. Frederick injury earlier this season really kind of hindered Iowa's times. I think that shows how big of an X factor he is again private team's best perimeter defender, at least among the Stars and 52% from three point range. I think right now of Iowa just continues to play their best basketball taking avoid a letdown against Nebraska on Thursday, and if they can come back and sweep Wisconsin, the regular season series and secure that double by, I think I was going to go into March with a lot of swagger and again. I just think that with the mental toughness of this group in the veteran mental in the veteran experience of this group Uh, that they're gonna play like there's nothing to lose. Because this truly is gonna be the final ride for these guys who just remember three years ago, I was 14 and 19. And these are the same guys. They stuck with the program, and now they leave, you know, arguably number one offense in the country in a nationally top 10 ranked team. Who is determined to go to a final four. So I think there are a lot of factors playing into that. But you guys know as well as I do. It matters when you play your best basketball and what the matchups are gonna be like. I think that Iowa for the most part, matches up with most teams around the country, especially if they don't really understand. Oracene, Iowa in a game setting, not just on film. 16.1 for Iowa on Sunday. 73 57 over Ohio State for the Buckeyes. The 57 points are a season low. There also had a season low, too offensive rebounds. And for the Buckeyes, the third straight loss first Top five team to lose three in a row since Arizona in the 2017 2018 season, Also in the Big 10 on Sunday, Maryland and Michigan State By Allah.

"To run the place has been there for twenty years himself. And i think we're not say a whole lot of wobbling of amazon and the next couple of quarters. So what kind of legacy do you think. Bezos leaves as the leader of amazon over that last quarter century. Well everything store. And he's kind of the everything guy who would have guessed when he was selling books sitting outside the space needle in seattle that one day. It'd be la everything from healthcare to web services so his legacy i think is going to be above. All he saw an opening was able to execute around building into that opening with books. And now everything else so as legacy is going to be one right up there. With the steve jobs and locates one of the great creators and innovators of the twentieth and now twenty first century. Is there something that makes this the right time for basis to step aside. You know not not that. It's determining the company's been doing extremely well as paul just explained but Sooner or later we all wanna move on that. It may be more of a personal matter. He's ready to focus on innovation. I think it is and a couple of weeks going to be hanging around. Though executive chairs often are very involved and sounds like he will be very involved. Really partner with andy. And that's a good thing too as he plays a lot to go on and for example just even working with the board of directors. That'll probably fall as executive chair in jeff's hands Andy can turn to other things. That anita's attention. It's going to be a partnership a couple years Ultimately a full transition prefer the moment. It's probably a pretty good pair to have at the top. I mentioned andy Being a part of aws cloud services which is obviously a huge part of amazon's business amongst other huge parts. The way that company has succeeded. But when you look at him taking the ceo's role and you think about this you know more longer term when a person is coming in as a new ceo of a very successful company the challenges he faces probably multiple. They are always a tough act to follow when you follow japanese. Oh so who's heading into another role But you know Let's go back to Apple where mr cooke followed steve. John big shoes to fill or look at the people. Now running. Google run. Google or microsoft. They again had big shoes to fill. But i think Here's a an affirmative statement.

"There'd be no but that's my. I don't mean years ago right and i don't mean just in in san francisco and the bay area. I'm talking about nationally. When they came to town. It was like the circus was in town. Right right everybody. Wants to see when i was covering the nba. Michael jordan used to it was a big night. Every city he went to every city at half. The arena was michael jordan fans. I remember covering games at madison square garden. People wanted to see michael score. Fifty and the knicks win the game. That's what they want. They didn't want the bulls to win but they wanted to see michael perform. And that's a great point of how you know whether or not a team is america's team and i'm with you and you know i like kansas city. I think they will win. More super bowls. But i think you hit on the head. They will be like golden state or like chicago. Michael jordan played. They will capture america's imagination for six years ten years. Whatever it is heck new england. Now new england i think was more polarizing then. Kansas city will be be going. Never was never was america's winning all that no they. Were you know a hugely popular team. But yeah they weren't america's team because they were a lot more polarized but to the degree that they were popular wants. Tom brady has gone off the map this year. Yeah okay we want to see cam. What does he bella check and he do it without brady but but nobody's really thinking about them right now and that's how you know dallas whether it was roger staubach danny white tony. Romo dad that prescott. Whoever they still are wildly popular they still have fans all over the country now. They are horrible for the most part over the last quarter century. So i get it if somebody wants to say what. They not america's team either our say then. There is no america's team the closest team. I would say rob. And i don't think they're america's team but if i if i was forced to pick when you can point to the attendant the viewership of the cowboys if you want but i always dozen the motion and all that but i think they're too bad to be america's team there's been too long of a run of futility for me but america's but i would say to steelers and i don't think they are america's team no but i'm saying they are a team that has fans throughout the country. They are far more consistently successful than pits are then dallas. So if i was forced to pick a team. I might say them. But i think we kansas city. I think they'll have a great run. They'll be must see tv. Everybody will want to watch him. Go see them. Play the whole nine yards. Maybe mahomes as i've said might be the goat but.

Surstromming: The World's Smelliest Food

"There are many foods that are considered an acquired taste foods that might not be palatable the first time you try it or something that just doesn't sit right with most people. It could be something as simple as blue cheese or something like the filipino delicacy balut which is a boiled fertilized egg with the embryos still inside sweden has its own acquired tastes delicacy which has spawned hundreds of reaction videos and caused it to be banned by airlines. Learn more about sir strumming. The world smelly food on this episode of everything everywhere. Daily this episode is sponsored by audible dot com. My audiobook recommendation. Today is the almost nearly perfect people. Behind the myth of the scandinavian utopia by michael booth journalists. Michael booth has lived among the scandinavians for more than ten years and he has grown increasingly frustrated with the roast into view of this part of the world offered up by the western media in this timely audiobook. He leaves his adoptive home of denmark and embarks on a journey through all five of the nordic countries to discover who these curious tribes are the secrets of their success and most intriguing of all what they think of each other. Why are the dane. So happy despite having the highest taxes to the finns really have the best education system. Are the icelanders as fareless.

Why do all of them hate the swedes. you can get a free one-month trial to audible in two free audiobooks by going to audible trial dot com slash everything everywhere or by clicking on the link in the show notes the word sir strumming in swedish literally means sour fish and that is probably an understatement. More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything. Like fish. ruben. Madsen of course aided anyhow

"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some <hes>. I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life <hes>. I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and <hes>. Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

"Bader Ginsburg was a force to be reckoned with. All I asked about brethren. They said. They take their feet off our necks, barely 5 FT. Tall but a liberal giant, only the second female justice named on the Supreme Court serving there for more than a quarter century. Her path to the highest court in the land was not easy. As one of the few women at Harvard Law School she faced discrimination. After graduating from Colombia in the fifties, her tenaciousness in the classroom highlighted in the Oscar nominated documentary on Ginsberg titled RBG produced by journalists Julie Cohen and Betsy West. She was one of nine women in a class of 500. She was tied for first in her class. And the Big New York City law firms just weren't hiring women, not a law firm in the entire city of New York. Did for my employment charging forward, she became a beloved law professor rockers and worked as a lawyer for the O U, She mapped out a legal strategy to file lawsuits against gender bias in employment, housing and government benefits. Man and women are persons of equal dignity and they should count. Equally before the law, You won't settle for putting Susan B. Anthony on the new dollars When they would say things like this. Haven't you respond? Well, never in anger, Mother told that's that would have been self defeating. Always as an opportunity. Teach. I didn't see myself was kind of a kindergarten teacher in those days because the judges Didn't think so. Sex discrimination existed. One of the things that tried to plant in their minds was Think about how you would like the world to be for your daughters and granddaughters. She won five landmark cases, which she argued on behalf of women in front of an all male bench long before she sat on it. Ginsberg went on to serve as an appeals court judge in the nation's capital until that life changing nomination by President Bill Clinton in 1993. I am proud to nominate for associate justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That announcement may never have happened had it not been for the intense lobbying effort by a staunch feminist, her husband, Marty Ginsburg, and at her confirmation hearing chaired by then Senator Joe Biden, the nominee did not shy away from her feminism spotlighting contentious topics like abortion rights.

Belarusian protest leader detained while trying to leave country

"Authorities say they have arrested in opposition leader on the country's border with Ukraine. But Maria Kalashnikov, US supporters say the government was trying to forcibly deport her and silence. Another critic of President Alexander Lukashenko. Kolesnikova was reportedly first picked up on the streets of Minsk on Monday by plainclothes police. She's been helping lead massive protests in Belarus since last month when President Lukashenko won a disputed reelection. He's been president of the country for more than a quarter century. For more on this arrest and what it means for Lukashenko's control. We're joined now by Hana Ahora. She's director of United Mass. Media and Association representing newspapers and new sites in Belarus. Welcome Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you today. Well, it's a pleasure to have you so there are two stories about what happened at the border. Do we know whether Kolesnikova was fleeing? As the government says she is or Was the government just trying to remove her from the country as faras. We know Maria didn't want to leave the country at all. So she was forced to go to the border, but then on the border, she just tore her passport in the small pieces, and she didn't refused to go to Ukraine. So as far as you know, Maria is still in Belarus, but nobody knows for sure. Where exactly Okay, Well, these protests have been going on for a month now. Lukashenko's government has rounded up thousands of demonstrators and recently it's tried targeting opposition leaders. How is that tactic working so far? Every step off the brutal detention or any kind of violence toward citizens is making our protests bigger and wider, say, still continuing to ask for the very simple things to have new friend for elections and to stop the brutality and violence on the means can belittle since treats and, of course to release the prisoners. So people are not going to stop it right now, despite on old effects for authorities actions Well, as we've said, Luca Shango has managed to hold on to power for quite some time for 26 years. He controls the media, the army, the economy, the secret police. Do people in Belarus genuinely believe that they can displace him with peaceful marches. It's a very heart and the good question.

They want to demonstrate that their wide majority so Unfortunately, we don't have any other tools to change situation from it from inside. Do you feel like you are living in a democracy?

Farming Releases Carbon From The Earth's Soil Into The Air. Can We Put It Back?

"Okay Dan. Let's dig in digging in return. Lol. was in Nigeria trying to improve agriculture by making the ground more fertile running into some big problems. You should know something about how he is not the sort of guy who's going to give up I am by nature. Competitive. You're either going to be in the top one, two, three, four hours you're not under survive. This attitude goes back to his childhood He grew up poor in India, his ticket out of the village was a government stipend a few dollars each month to study at university. And only keep getting that stipend if his grades were in the top five in the class I've always scared if I did not get good grades. Ira Not got these type and. So that was the motivator always. Fear. It was fear. Of Insecurity He that's. In security never really napped me even when. He found his way to the US for Grad School at Ohio. State. got a PhD in Soil Science. And so now picking up our stories back in Nigeria determined to find a way to protect the soil in his research plots. And one day. A famous scientist came to visit Roger rebel one of the pioneers in what we now call climate science. So Pretend Lau tells rebel about his problems how this organic matter just keeps disappearing. And reveal says you know the organic matter is going into the air as carbon dioxide. That's the main greenhouse gas. Any asks reten lower question. Can you put it back? Can you put it back like put the carbon back into the soil Yep? That's simple statement. Can you put it? was. My introduction. Climate and so it stuck with you. It's stuck with me. It's still there. Dude. Yeah. It sounds like a question that changed his life. Yeah. It's sort of brought together these two worlds. On the one hand there's farming which loud had been focused on and on the other hand there's climate science our heating up the globe releasing greenhouse gases and Dan this problem we should say retain was trying to solve in Nigeria where too much carbon escapes when you use land to grow food this is it's not a problem specific to one country. Oh, it's it's happening everywhere. it happens perhaps faster in Nigeria where the because of the hot climate and the physical structure and chemical makeup of the soil. But same thing happens everywhere that people are growing crops. So you know just an example, the American Midwest couple of hundred years ago when that was all covered with grass, that soil was really rich in carbon then settlers arrived plowed it all up. And immediately that released carbon dioxide into the air tons of it from every Acre of soil and today roughly half of the carbon across the Midwest is gone well, scientists have actually come up with an estimate for the total amount of carbon released from soil around the world. Since people started farming, you want hear the number of course I do. What? One hundred thirty. Billion metric tons of carbon. With the be okay. That sounds that sounds like a lot. So it is a lot. In perspective at the current rate that the US is burning fossil fuels, it would take us a quarter century to release that much carbon dioxide okayed. So Dan, you're saying that while he was working on ways to get that carbon back into the ground, how exactly did he start to do that? Okay. So this idea what people call carbon sequestration in soil really became his calling card. When he came back to Ohio state, you know to teach in the late nineteen eighties he was writing articles giving. Describing the soil as this vast global reservoir of carbon. So farmers have been depleting the reservoir releasing carbon into the air. But he started doing experiments to see if they could also refilled at reservoir with the West malts experiment. And it was setup totally back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, and nine. So, this isn't an all moon allow. He's a PhD student at Ohio State in one of lyles students. and. He is showing me one of these experiments was going for thirty years small squares of soil. Universities. Research Farm. Dedication. Experiment keep going and see these long term phenomenon inaction anyway. So some of the plots have been covered with mulch made of Straw every year others have stayed bear and those bare soil plots now contain less than one percent carbon versus the carbon content in plot the receives maximum amount of Mulch is probably upwards four percent. Okay four percent versus one percent. That's a lie. Yeah. That's actually a huge difference. If you have that big of a difference in an Acre of soil depending how deep you're measuring, that would be thirty tonnes of carbon. If you extended that across all American crop land, it would be billions of tons of additional carbon in the ground. It would cancel out the about one year's worth of the country's total fossil fuel burning. and. It also makes saw better in a fertile at holds more water contains more nutrients like nitrogen, the life blood of soil organic

Obituary: Herman Cain

"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

They really go off the rails. We can talk about the last quarter century of China as something that Pierce to bean on the rails. But you can talk about the quarter century of chairman Mao as how badly off the rails a country can go, which, frankly, is unthinkable in a democratic system.

He said, talking talking talking and it is true because he convert the world in a words, we'll tool, but explain talking about the people space, the lesson of the history for this dumb people, especially is extre many in this of changes. Ryan falls. Our classical values in the liberal democracies is the best example the best explanation for the generation of Tom illness, less word for you. Estonia is a country fewer than two million people bordering on a resurgent, authoritarian, Russia. After having been held by Russia for decades. And also now witnessing the rise of an authoritarian China, what do you say to some kid and Estonia who saying between Russia and China? What do you say to kid to say, no, democracy is democracy is worth it. First thing I tell them study math study, math. All right, Tom, explain that one. Well, it's just that if you want to keep up with the world, you're going to need to understand what is happening technologically. And certainly that's something that I just encourage encourage them to do for twenty five years. Well, I mean we have it's very hard for me to say because we're actually getting to a point where we now have generation that does not remember what it was like. Whereas up to now we've been doing rather well because everyone remembered what the battle days were like. And now we have coming into sort of full bloom. People twenty eight twenty nine thirty who do not know what it means to live in a country where you do not have democratic rights and freedoms. And I think this is part of the problem and much of Europe is that many countries have forgotten. Many people have forgotten that and that same sort of selfish. Of bulb demographic bulge that Nick was talking about known as the baby boomers. At least they had some kind of idea, but well, we know what the communist regime was like, even older people. Remember what authority and ISM in the heart of Europe meant. So I agree. I think you really need to know your history and face that history, realizing how bad it can get because no one believed in nineteen thirteen how bad it can get, because that was also an era of free trade blossoming democracy. Are you up to mystic? Are you up to mystic for the prospect for democracy? I'm always up domestic. Stephen, yes. Notwithstanding all our problems we, we should have with technological advancement, the greatest possibilities of human life ahead of us Philippe it. Nope. I mean, you have a chance to end this on a high note..

"One thing to know about this issue is that it's actually really difficult to find out information about pregnant women inmates and that's because we are not collecting that data at the state or federal level so in this episode a lot of the research that we've compiled comes from advocacy organisations like the sentencing project women in prison project and on the national in law center and you might be thinking that there aren't that many women in prison right prisons in our country are predominantly filled by men but the reality is that over the last quarter century there's been a steadily increasing number of women in prison due in no small part to the rise of non violent drug offenses landing people in jail and women are more likely than men to be arrested for those nonviolent drug offenses so the fact that were locking people up who are no violent threat to society but have landed themselves in hot water and broken the law when it comes to drug policy in the united states means we're filling prisons with more women than ever yeah and that's that's so sad to me i have to say one thing that gives me a little bit of optimism in this optimism might be sort of earned but i'm a little optimistic anyway i feel like the titus kind of turned in terms of how we think of non violent drug offenders in this country i think that when you had the crack epidemic and most drug offenders were folks of color people had a very very hardline stands like locked them up the way the key i think these days as the demographics are shifting culturally and racially i've seen people taking new stanzas on this issue so i'm a little bit optimistic in that.

"I think that there has been a real emphasis on carrots threw out the last quarter century of negotiations what kinds of incentives positive incentives can we hold out to the parties this was a major feature of the obama administration strategy under carry the he began his process talking about the billions he was going to get for the west bank which never materialized europeans have offered upgrades and status to israel the israel has known since two thousand two that full peace with the palestinians means a full peace with the entire arab world because of the arab peace initiative because of their peace initiative and i do not believe that the missing ingredient has been insufficient carrots i think the missing ingredient has been insufficient sticks meyer those carrots enough well the carrots aren't enough because let's just examine the choice for an israeli prime minister you can on one hand decide not to sign a deal let's not worry about the details for now but let's say a deal along the lines of the clinton parameters of two thousand so that's choice one you don't do that what consequences do you face basically none some recrimination 's in the press and you'll have this battle with the palestinians of who is at fault different advocates will go on cnn and blame the other side but basically everything stays the same which is to say that you have full control of the west bank inside the west bank along the border with jordan and control of gaza from without and you've really not disrupted anything politically inside of israel because there isn't a strong demand to have signed that agreement and every everyone will believe you if you say that i didn't sign it because the other side is not a partner or their demands were unreasonable so electorally it just makes no sense to choose that option when you compare it to the alternative and the alternative option is make this agreement you face enormous upheaval in israel maybe it doesn't even go through.
